UKIP leader defends support for sacked dinner lady - ITV News


Inayat Bunglawala, founder of campaign group Muslims4UK, said that the sacking, for a one off mistake, was, on the face of it, an overreaction.
But he added: "I am a bit concerned that a leader of a political party would seek to make capital out of this, because it is a minor issue."

Really !!!! a minor issue !!! try telling that to the lady concerned, you knob.

Top employees don't just get sacked off the cuff for a single mistake. I think it may be conceivable that the lady in question screwed up one time too many.

Journos sensationalising a point to get readers, whatever next!

They do if it's gross misconduct and while I don't think you're wrong necessarily, I do reckon the rub of this is in mention of a "dietary requirements" list.

Give a big (or little in this case) scary Muslim a hunk of pig and as most people seem to agree there's no harm done, give a coeliac child a bread roll causing a rampant dose of the squirts however and the parents will be on to Claims Direct before the underwear is on rinse cycle.

Same list? Dunno, but it's a sound bet.

Hmm the interview sounded a bit suspect.
Is this the only reason you were sacked?
On paper yes..... (sounds like more has gone on and this was the final straw)

She deserved it the insensitive bitch. Bet she had a couple of pound of Wall's sausages under the counter as well.

Indeed.


"Dinner Lady Sacked after Killing Child with Peanuts" probably wouldn't get the old outrage bus quite so revved-up.

It's actually very hard to give someone 'instant dismissal' as this woman claims- that is for a single offence.

Pretty well the only grounds, as mentioned earlier, is gross misconduct which is something like dishonesty, serious harassment, violence (or threat of).

Outside of that, and the dinner lady's offence is nowhere near gross misconduct, the employer has to go through all sorts of hoops to get rid of someone, invariably involving verbal warnings, final written warnings and so on.

She's kicked of the outrage bus but if the truth comes out, it will probably be at odds with her claim

Unfortunately this is the result of religious freeks believing a book that was written about 1500 yrs ago and a " diversity policy" lead employer........you don't want to upset the muslamics now do you!!

Religion and diversity tut tut!

Breach of an H&S policy will invariably constitute gross misconduct, if the "dietary requirement" list mentioned includes those with food allergies as well as those with religious notions then not being able to keep up with it will get you your P45.

Makes you wonder how we got along before they invented H&S and food allergies don't it?

When I went to school the choices were eat it or don't eat it.

What's all the fuss about,my local take away has been selling the neighbourhood dog/cat/rat and claiming it is chicken.
Tesco's et al have been selling us horse instead of beef.
And Birdseye have for years and years been selling some weird concoction in breadcrumbs and telling us it's fish.

It's just unfortunate that this dinnerlady worked for a crap company who are ready to sack the staff rather than take the blame themselves.
